Lamb, Margaret Elizabeth (1834–1901)

We learn with poignant regret the death of Mrs. Walter [Margaret Elizabeth] Lamb, the sad event having taken place in London on Wednesday last. Mrs. Lamb was a daughter of the late Mr. Henry Dangar, the founder of the celebrated Neotsfield estate in this district, and sister to the following:— Mr. F. H. Dangar, of London; Hon. H. C. Dangar, M.L.C., of Sydney; and Mr. A. A. Dangar, of Baroona. In the fifties, the deceased married Mr. Walter Lamb, a son of the late Captain Lamb, Royal Navy, who resided in Sydney about half-a-century ago. Six or seven months ago Mrs. Lamb proceeded on a visit to England, and as no news had been made public relative to Mrs. Lamb's health being in an unsatisfactory state, the announcement of her death in Saturday's papers came as a shock to the many friends of this much esteemed lady. General sympathy is expressed on all sides with Mr. Walter Lamb and the members of his family in their sad bereavement. Mr. L. A. Lamb, of Baroona, is a son of the deceased.
